the cliffs for the market or to have a pared down deal that the marnlts don't like. >> they probably have some kind of deal that probably spares the majority of middle-class americans and tax cuts that prevents this sort of chaotic automatic spending cuts and things like that but think in general the markets have lost their patience with the process. i think a failure to come to a deal would be a reminder of what as seen on paper seems obvious. even that is not likely. so i think a small deal is better than no deal, but, you know, as mike said we're heading for another fight just like last summer the summer of 2011 when the debt ceiling was kind of held hostage to this process. >> which industries are really affected? who's going to be hit by this? >> the spending cuts kind of hit all at once. it's probably the defense that's probably the number one industry that gets hit but there's all kinds of unintended and unexplored areas that get affected. for instance what happens to the food prices. it's not part of the fiscal cliff package but there's a farm subsidy bill th

to shield the american people from the true cost of government, we really don't have any constituency here to help reduce spending because we have not dealt with that issue, there's been no progress on the entitlement spending this is unfortunately going to carry on to the debt ceiling debate and what that means is every american is going to be harmed because the economy is not going to be what it should be. so because we have lacked the courage to face up to deal with these issues we here in washington are going to hurt the american economy we're going to hurt americans at every level, and to me it's just a travesty that we've not been willing to deal with this issue when for the last two years, jeff we have known this time is coming. no congress has been more prepared to deal with this issue than us. >> senator, do you think progress is going to come from this meeting this afternoon? let me ask you about that. >> well here probably the worst case scenario will come out of this meeting today and that is we will kick the can down the road, jeff we'll do some small d

?" and they said, "we've had "a lot of problems on the schuylkill. "don't go to the hudson river. go to the upland and work by gravity." and that's what new york city did. they first went to the hudson highlands, but 150 years later, it went to the delaware highlands. and really diverted the water that normally went to philadelphia to new york city. i don't think they anticipated that. narrator: the majority of new york city's drinking water comes from watersheds in upstate new york. a watershed is the area of land where water from rain or snow melt drains downhill into a body of water. mountains act as a funnel to feed rivers and lakes. and in this case, reservoirs. in the new york city system, water is collected and stored in 19 reservoirs, which can hold more than a year's supply -- over 580 billion gallons of water. almost all of the system is fed by gravity, without the use of energy-consuming pumps. valves open to regulate the flow into the 85-mile-long delaware aqueduct -- the longest tunnel in the world. at hillview reservoir... the water is partitioned into another giant tunnel system. wh
